Ethics are a vital part of sports and there is a lack of ethics in some of our players today.

Victoria Molnar's curator insight, March 13, 2014 4:08 PM

This article has some good points about how the game and sports industry has turned into money. I feel this author is just venting about how they are using money and turning players into money hungry athletes. However, it is true some players will not even sign with a team over a couple of million dollars. This is crazy, many people would give their left arm for just one million dollars and here they are complaining that they are not paid enough. It should be about playing the sport because they love it and want to be a good role model not just to make millions and move on with life.

Lisa Kirk's curator insight, May 15, 2015 12:10 AM

I really enjoyed reading this article regarding ethics in athletes. Players are acting like children when they are supposed to be role models and professional leaders in an organization.  This article encompasses several situations where it involves baseball players spitting on each other, football owners building the biggest stadiums and players robbing banks. Where are their ethics and morals for the future athletes to emulate?  


My sister's friend met their classmate, who was a professional baseball player, at a professional baseball game.  After the game, there was a meet and greet for the fans.  His friends screamed out his name and he  ignored them as he continued to sign on the merchandise and walked away.  They never had a chance to talk to him and he never gave them the time or day.  Some may say, maybe he didn't remember them? When you start screaming out your High School team and friend's names, you never forget.

Recently, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers shocked many American football fans with an act that might not seem particularly controversial: they continued playing until the game officially ended.

Mz Mississippi's insight:

As a coach you always teach players to play until you hear a whistle or the horn blows. The Gaints my think that it was a cheap shot but their coach should have had them prepare for anything. I wonder did they learn from that mistake?

It is all about how you play the game rather than focusing on winning or losing. Tampa Bay played through the game until it ended while the New York Giants made assumption that they were going to win.

Legal and Ethical Responsibilities of a Coach

How many career options can provide the excitement, challenges and satisfaction of coaching? Coaches at all levels experience the pleasure of watching young people develop sport skills and contribute to successful teams. However, coaches also have important legal and ethical obligations to their schools and their athletes. Many of these obligations or responsibilities are natural extensions of the mission and goals of the high school athletic program. Others are defined legally or are expectations of society for a “teacher” in a school activity.

Mz Mississippi's insight:

I not for sure if this done but when a person is hire to coach no matter the sport he or she should sigh a legal code of ethics along with thier contract.

   Coaches must adhere to legal and ethical responsibilities within the profession. These responsibilities are outlined through certification classes. All coaches must keep athletes safe both physically and emotionally and these standard that they must follow are outlined in the National Association for Sport Physical Education. A coach needs to be a role model for athletes under his or her care.

Legal and ethical obligations play an important role in how a coach will teach his or her players.

Dillon Fury's curator insight, September 10, 2014 12:44 PM

There's a lot of weight resting on the shoulders of a coach. They are to make good ethical decisions for their players and themselves.

The" Wooding" definition of Success breeds winning in more areas the sports. With high moral standards and ethical practices he makes success about the dedication of doing your best instead of winning at all cost. 

Dillon Fury's curator insight, September 10, 2014 12:47 PM

Winning the game is not everything. Being successful is not defined by who won the game either.
